About Ben Matheson

We love to travel as much as you do. We never seems to stay in the same place for long and buy new homes to explore new parts of the US and Europe. Each time we we move to new home our old one becomes a vacation villa so we can share the wonderful locations we've enjoyed so much.

Ben Matheson purchased this house in 2001

Why Ben Matheson chose New Port Richey

New Port Richey is an affordable way to be close to everything. Busch Gardens, Tarpon Springs, Tampa, Clearwater etc. So close to it all but without the crowds and half the price.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome stay, well worth the $1300. Good restaurants close by. Private beach was awesome for the kids. Caught some fish from the dock and even had several Dolphin swim right by in the canal. Will definitely be back next year.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed an awesome spring break in this home! The pool and game room went over well with the kids! The pictures do not do the home justice at all. It definitely feels like a home away from home. We are ready to go again!

Awesome Family Vacation and Great Home

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for my vacation with my kids and grandchildren. The family room was perfect for teenage boys. The private beach was great for our 7 month old baby and 3 year old grandchildren. The kitchen was large enough and had what we needed. We cooked almost every night. We caught crabs off of the dock and cooked them. The pool was amazing to relax in the evening, and the screened in porch was awesome for morning coffee. We loved the house, the area and our vacation. The owner was very responsive and friendly.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property was wonderful. We met family coming from New York and we drove in from Kansas. Everyone was quite impressed with the house's open floor concept. The master bedroom and bath were amazing. The swimming pool and canal were awesome. We were within an hour drive from everything in the area, such as a Tampa Rays game, the Clearwater Aquarium, Tarpon Springs, Honeymoon Beach and much more. The homeowners were great and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend staying in this location.

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

The house couldn't have been more perfect! There were 7 of us and it never seemed cramped or crowded. The beds were comfortable, also plenty of closet and dresser space. Both bathrooms were spacious, especially the master bath. The garden tub was used quite frequently :) The kitchen had every pot/pan, utensil I needed to fix family meals. We celebrated two birthdays during our stay and I was able to bake each of them a cake! The outdoor area was great!! We enjoyed the private outdoor pool every day and used the grill several times during the week. There were pool noodles and goggles for the kids to use. The game room was better than I expected! My husband and 8 year old son played the Xbox several times. We also had a great time playing games of pool. I spent my mornings drinking coffee on the back screened in deck that overlooks the canal. So quiet and relaxing. The fish literally jump out of the water. It was definitely entertaining!! While staying at Waterfront Dream we took trips to the nearby beaches. Caladesi Island was our favorite! We took a ferry boat to the Island and enjoyed the day swimming in the Gulf, shelling and taking in the breathtaking views of the undeveloped Island. Clearwater beach was about a 45 minute drive, but SO worth it. We went there several times during our stay. Make sure one trip to Clearwater beach is during the evening. Pier 60 had street performers, local artists selling their goods, tons of souvenir shops, eateries, ice cream parlors. The sunset at the Pier is a MUST SEE!!! Our stay was fun and relaxing. It was a perfect and much needed getaway! Thank you Ben! I would love to come back again someday!

A pefect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. There was 5 of us. 2 kids ages 10 an 9 and they absolutely loved the pool. It was the 1st thing they did 5 minutes in the house. They jumped right in ...clothes and all. The beds were comfortable. Everybody said they slept good. Theres an extra cot which my son loved. The game room is nice but it does need a new dart board. Also more billiard cues. We didn't hang out much down there. But the access to pool and garage from there was a plus.

The T.V. IS SMALL for the living room...but hey..your on vacation..

We got to crab and fish right off the dock. The private beach is a short drive but its nice.

Grocery stores is so close. And so is everything else. Clearwater was only like 50 minutes.

We loved it. Thank you Ben. I hope we get the chance to come again.

Highly recommended. Thank you.

Great location for the price.

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful, and quietly located. Had everything you need for the week. The pool was nice and the house clean. Would have given it 5 stars but the place does need a little TLC. Would stay there again for sure.
